LeSean McCoy continued his impressive preseason play on Monday night against the Patriots, proving once again that he is the focal point of the offense. We break down the fantasy implications.

LeSean McCoy continued his impressive preseason play Monday night against the New England Patriots, proving once again that he is the focal point of the Philadelphia Eagles offense. McCoy rushed eight times for 29 yards and a touchdown and added two catches for 12 yards out of the backfield. In 2011, McCoy amassed over 1,600 total yards and found the end zone 20 times.

Analysis: LeSean McCoy is entrenched as one of the top three picks in fantasy football drafts this season. He was dominant a year ago, and a case can be made to draft McCoy with the No. 1 pick in fantasy drafts this season. However, the Eagles' offense isn't always the most reliable with Michael Vick a near lock to miss a handful of games each season. As the talent diminishes around McCoy, one would expect his production to drop. But he's proven to be a capable fantasy back regardless of the circumstances. Just imagine what he could accomplish if everyone around him stays healthy.
